The Design Process
I ask the client to send me some photos, if you do not have a digital camera you can post them. From this I produce a design. It is then possible to tweak the design if the client has reservations.
As you can see the design captures the essence of the final piece. Obviously the final piece is far better quality and the painting is more detailed. The design is only really a positional overview to give a flavour of the finished sculpture.

Driftwood Dreams Conditions
- The payment of 50% deposit forms a contract whereby the artist is bound to complete your artwork.
- The artist requires specific details at the approval of design stage (i.e. before starting) such as eye colours, glasses on or off, specific garments (bright colours work best).
- Whilst every effort will be made to keep to the approved design, the artist reserves the right to alter proportions of the figures in the foreground, the form of the background and other details so as to create the best illusion of depth.
- Every effort will be made to keep to the specified or required date; however circumstances out of the artist’s control can at times cause the artwork to be delayed. This is very unlikely, but if it happens, the artist will keep you informed at all times.
- The final monies are due on sight of final artwork. Where the artwork is not being collected, the money must be received before the art is sent. Artworks not collected must be paid for within 30 days.
- A personalised message can be put on the reverse. The artist will happily send you a sample for design and layout.
- If the artwork is to arrive after the given date, the artist will be pleased to prepare a clever teaser for the actual day. A sample can be sent to you to give you an idea. This is always well received.
- The artwork is varnished with a strong clear varnish and will have a wall hanging device on reverse. The size of a normal tableau is approximately A4.
- It is always suggested that artworks are sent by courier. Courier is billed at cost and a very safe mode of transport. The artwork will be packed in a box and wrapped carefully in bubble wrap. All artworks sent abroad will be sent by first class airmail with a tracker and insurance. Damage in transit is minimised.
- The artist is happy to meet with you to collect the artwork in person. She will prepare coffee and snacks and if you wish, show you a range of her work.
- The artist reserves the right to use photos of any stage of artwork for advertising, publicity & the website.
